5:03 am
health experts say a hot agent like ebola getting on an plane and into the u.s. air system would be bad but that ebola scare down in l.a.x. yesterday turned out to be a false alarm. a passenger on a united flight from new york was vomiting and then showing other flu-like symptoms when the plane landed at l.a.x. crews followed cdc protocol and escorted the jet to a remote part of the airport. the hazmat team came on board. they were initially told the woman had recently been to west africa, apparently there's a miscommunication. she had been in south africa. it's now believed she was simply airsick but turned out to be a useful drill. dozens of nurses held a rally in oakland sunday in response to the ebola crisis. they claim many hospitals aren't prepared to handle such a case. that is according to a national survey that says the majority of nurses haven't heard anything from their hospitals about policies on dealing with ebola. this after a nurse who treated the ebola patient in texas also

5:06 am
them. >> reporter: the obama administration says the fight will take time and require patience. military leaders believe progress is being made. >> it was not so long ago we were talking about the imminent fall of the capital of the kurdish regional government. it was not so long ago when the u.s. embassy was actually feeling threatened in baghdad. none of those are part of the landscape right now. >> we are confident about our ability to pull this strategy together. >> reporter: but with time comes a mounting death toll. violence already killed over 13,000 people in iraq this year. cbs news, washington. today police in hong kong removed some barricades used by pro-dmomsy protesters there. a crowd opposed to protests clashed with police. two dozen men tried to remove more barricades and several other hundred people began chanting open the road. officers reportedly tried to keep the two sides apart from

5:13 am
best part. >> reporter: the stars of the fleet week aerial show were back this weekend too. the blue angels wowed the crowd. federal budget cuts forced them to cancel last year. so that show drew a lot of people to -- that meant parking was a nightmare. even more than usual for a normal weekend in san francisco. so that is saying something if you're coming back down here to the waterfront this morning. expect some more headaches because sales force has its convention not far away at muscony center. the streets are already closed, power between 3rd and 4th already closed this morning. >> it's a popular city. thank you. tours today scheduled from 9:00 this morning until 4:00 p.m. go check it out. 5:13. let's check with elizabeth now. >> thank you. we have a traffic alert as you just saw. you may have seen that swipe
5:14 am
across your screen. in it's concord, on the eastbound lanes of highway 4 approaching port chicago highway. a couple of connector ramps are closed, northbound 242 to eastbound highway 4, that ramp actually remains blocked. while they work to clear this accident. we're hearing it's a solo car crash but it may be an overturned, so again just a heads up if you're traveling in the area. one of our hot spots. live look outside, at the nimitz freeway, 880 in oakland, it should have been cleared up by now. a little earlier you could see warning signs about a number of lanes that were blocked overnight but that should have been cleared in the last 15 minutes. around san francisco, fleet week's last day and the howard street closures between 3rd and 4th. they are in effect until saturday actually, until saturday the 18th. and in the meantime use harrison as an alternate or just expect delays in the area. we have these howard street
5:15 am
closures last month for another convention. it cause as mess every time. westbound 580 through the livermore valley looks ok. it's a holiday so maybe we'll see traffic slightly down. a lot of kids still in school despite the holiday. so slowdowns coming from tracy beginning around mountainhouse and then you can see it's pretty sluggish now all the way through through. it clears once you reach livermore, dublin interchange and the golden gate bridge should get another lane open here in the commute direction. crews have been busy there. getting four southbound lanes open in the commute direction. we have forecast changes i guess mid-week? here we go, yeah, looks like we turn to maybe wet weather around the bay area. lots of sunshine over the weekend with a beautiful weekend indeed. today looking very nice on this columbus day. a couple of things, that cold front to the north could bring major changes as soon as tomorrow, then look what is creeping from the south. low clouds and fog, think that
5:16 am
could be a factor late in the day towards the beaches. so this morning starting out with patchy dense fog along the immediate coastline. otherwise clear inland and inside the bay then mostly sunny skies later on and then here comes a little fog moving up along the coastline late in the day. high pressure starting the weekend in a bit but not enough before leaving us a nice day today. then as we get in towards tomorrow there's a slight chance of drizzle, maybe light sprinkles. temperatures around the state on the hot side, in the valley 91 sacramento, 96 in fresno. becoming foggy in the monterey bay by the afternoon. interestingly, you can see fog and clouds moving up along the coastline late in the day. as we head into towards tomorrow the cold front begins to sweep in, clouds on the increase, a chance of drizzle and light sprinkles rolling through the bay area. late tomorrow and into early wednesday morning. temperatures around the bay area today, a little cooler but not bad, 87 degrees in san jose. 84 hayward. 76 degrees before the fog moves in, in pacifica. 80s in much of the east bay and not a lot cooler there. you'll see about 83 oakland and
5:17 am
78 degrees in san francisco. next couple of days, we'll watch the temperature really dropping off. that will be the big change. slight chance of sprinkles on tuesday and wednesday. i think a better chance of more rain and more significant storm system rolling into the bay area late in the day on friday. and into early saturday morning. so starting a little early but i don't think anybody should be change with our current water shortage, looks like we get things going. >> the soccer fields were brown. >> so dry. >> it's a huge difference. >> right now at&t? no? not yet but a few showers there on and off so we have to watch that. today you can get free chocolate at a well known candy store in northern california. >> free! all you have to do is mention where is roberta. >> that is the catch. speaking of roberta gonzales she's at the original ghirardelli factory now. >> where is roberta? >> reporter: good morning.

we would see lighter traffic but it's not the case at the bay bridge toll plaza. they turned the metering lights on, even earl before 5:40. there is a guy apparently changing his tire and he's on the incline westbound 80 so he's apparently in lane, doesn't sound very safe. it's blocking a lane now as well. so they went ahead and activated the metering lights and you're already seeing delays as far back as the overcrossings. 10 to 15 minutes just to get to the bridge. again watch for that driver -- changing the flat tire on the span of the bay bridge. here's a live look at -- a traffic alert still in effect in concord. this is an overturned injury crash, eastbound highway 4, port chicago highway, a number of ramps in the area still closed as well. the eastbound highway 4 ramps, off-ramp to port chicago highway is closed as well as the 242 ramp to port chicago highway. tow crews are out there so hopefully it's in the clearing stages but they went ahead and issued that traffic alert because they figure lanes will

be blocked for at least a half- hour. live look at the golden gate bridge, no delays, everything quiet here. looking at the south bay, a similar thing, maybe a few delays on northbound 101 just past the 280/680 interchange to the mckee exit but overall big picture, doing pretty well for a monday morning. no problems on 280 or the quad loop parkway. if you're traveling westbound 580 a bottle neck growing here, just sluggish. another check of the forecast, rain is on the way. it's going to be a very exciting week. usually the rain doesn't come for another couple of weeks but here we go. today no rain. it's going to stay dry today. lots of sunshine. temperatures going to be a little cooler. a couple of things, you have that cold front to the north. that is going to be dropping in our direction. could bring a few raindrops. but from the south you see fog creeping up along the coastline. that is a southerly surge of fog, likely we'll see fog developing along the coastline. latter part of the day.
